Welcome to our Centre

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Coromandel Valley, a childcare and day care centre situated perfectly for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Chandlers Hill, Craigburn, Aberfoyle Park, Flagstaff Hill, Blackwood, and Hawthorndene. Located in south-east Adelaide, our centre is custom designed to offer an inspiring and stimulating early learning environment for children aged six weeks to six years. 

Children are supported with a dedicated and experienced team of Teachers and Educators who take a personalised approach to learning, ensuring that each child receives the best possible care tailored to their own individual needs. 

Featuring expansive, light filled environments such as our spacious outdoor area and dedicated communal piazza for children to socialise and connect during mealtime – our childcare centre provides a safe and secure environment for your child to continue to explore and discover their world!  

Our childcare centre also includes onsite parking, making it easier for parents to access during pick up and drop off every morning and evening. 

As the only early learning childcare centre within a 2km radius, families will also have access to our leading Kindergarten program. Our program has been designed specifically to prepare children for a smooth transition from childcare to Primary School, focusing on open-ended and play based experiences that: 

  • Teach basic numeracy and literacy skills needed for academic success and; 
  • Have clear learning outcomes, delivering on the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standard for Early Childhood. 

Our program also offers families support by way of longer care hours, that way, you won’t have to worry about juggling the duties of your day-to-day.  

Unique to Guardian, parents will have the opportunity to connect and track the progress of their child’s learning through our Visible Learning Program. Found on the Learning Exchange Display located in the Centre, our Teachers and Educators will be able to share with you the latest educational developments and milestones of your child, whilst also giving you the chance to share your own inputs and goals so that you’re involved in your child’s learning too! 

Families will also have access to our family communication app, StoryPark. Here we share with you the deeper insights on what’s happening day-to-day with your children, as well as any other updates or experiences that occur within the Centre.

Excellent childcare for my 17month old. He is cared for and given engaging activities that enrich his education. He can now clear his bowl, wipe down his table and is communicating with others better.

My children absolutely love coming to Guardian at Coromandel Valley. It’s a beautiful centre with a lovely big garden to explore. The rooms are set up beautifully and my children always say how yummy the food is. The staff are really lovely and engaging and admin updates are really handy with the app they use. We’ve had a lot of tours with other centres and this one was far by the best. Would 100% recommend, We love it here.

We have had a very good experience sending our children to Guardian. The staff are the biggest factor. They're warm, enthusiastic, attentive and communicate well with each other and myself regarding our kids. The centre environment and facilities are also fantastic in my eyes. I love the layout at Coromandel Valley. The open flow and crossover across the different age areas; the large, shared outdoor area with places to take risks and get dirty or play quietly; the well-balanced feel of bright colours and activities with natural colours and materials; and the dining areas and approach to eating times.

Our son loves going to Guardian at Coromandel Valley. The centre is so nice and open and the outdoor area is amazing. We have noticed how much our son has developed over the past few months and he gets excited when we arrive. The staff are all so friendly and greet us every time we arrive. At the end of the day at pick up they go through what our son has done, what he has eaten and how long he had slept for, which I find very important. I would definitely recommend Guardian at Coromandel Valley.

We have had a wonderful experience here so far. The staff are very friendly and professional. The centre is extremely clean and brand new. There is a kitchen and chef on site with a menu that is seasonal and forwarded to parents for input. The outdoor environment is beautiful and really peaceful for the children. We are very grateful to be able to receive photos and stories throughout the day describing what our child has been doing. Everything a parent needs in a daycare.

Beautiful centre, facilities and location! The staff have been so welcoming since we started - they have been incredibly attentive and accommodating too. My daughter has wonderful learning experiences and everything is well documented and a joy to read. Staff in the setting are always so friendly and polite with me and very nurturing towards my daughter - nothing is too much hassle for them. The menu is healthy and varied - there is always an alternative for my fussy eater too, which I love! Thank you Guardian Coromandel Valley... I highly recommend this centre.
